Changing the Citizen Experience
Public Safety officials are investigating new ways of communicating in order to increase effectiveness and improve emergency response times in an environment of severe budget restraints. Kodiak-powered Push-to-Talk offers enhanced instant communications technology to help public safety organizations collaborate with a variety of departments, agencies, and mobile workers to protect citizens and serve them quickly and efficiently. Kodiak-powered PTT interoperates with Land Mobile Radio (LMR) systems and uses the latest cellular networks (including 4G LTE, 4G HSPA+, and 3G) and Wi-Fi to ensure secure and continuous network coverage and real-time connectivity throughout densely populated urban neighborhoods and remote locations — requiring just one device for PTT, LMR interoperability, and access to mobile broadband data.
Improved Citizen Services through Integrated Communications
Public safety organizations have primarily used LMR systems for mobile communications. While LMR is a proven mission-critical instant voice solution, it has the shortcomings of limited coverage, very low data capacity: inadequate interoperability, and very high cost. While many public safety agencies are leveraging advanced communications technology, others are still challenged with fragmented legacy voice and data communications systems including old PBX/Centrex, intercom/paging, regular cellular voice, and two-way radio systems. Kodiak-powered PTT delivers a complete communications solution for public safety agencies of all levels by integrating instant voice calling, group communications, regular voice, broadband data, productivity applications, and administrative processes—all onto a single robust mobile platform. Kodiak-powered PTT runs on a broad range of mobile handsets and a Windows PC so that public safety employees are able to seamlessly communicate using the same infrastructure and improve their ability to serve and protect citizens.
Helping Governments Protect and Serve
Ensuring citizen safety requires that public safety officials have the ability to stay informed and quickly communicate to large groups in response to emergency situations and potential security threats. All functions within public safety organizations can leverage Kodiak-powered Push-to-Talk—agency heads, rescue personnel, patrol officers, emergency responders, and dispatchers—to communicate instantly with a broad range of devices and purpose-built PTT accessories for hands-free use in dynamic environments and mobile conditions. Support for LMR interoperability ensures timely communications and cross-agency collaboration regardless of mobile communications networks used. Kodiak-powered PTT provides a Web-based corporate administration tool that enables dynamic creation or updating of contacts and talk groups that are synched to devices wirelessly and in real-time, so that agency officials, rescue workers, and emergency response teams can be easily reached during crisis situations. In addition, Kodiak-powered PTT allows public safety agencies to reserve crowded LMR frequency spectrums to people who need them most.
